Last weekend was an overstyled festival of vanity as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim swept through South Beach. When it was over, "you better werk" turned into "no, really, you better work or your boss is gonna be super pissed." Without any bikini beauties around, life sure felt ugly.

But here's the good news: It's the weekend, and this one's packed with events that'll make you forget all your troubles. And unlike last weekend's extravaganza of bouncing breasts and visible ribcages, these probably won't even give you additional body image issues. Hooray!

(There's also yet another fashion event, just in case yesterday's Fifty Shades of Grey trailer release has you feeling extra masochistic.)


  • Sara Bareilles: She wants to see you be brave. Honestly.
  • Fashion X Music: Hyde Beach pairs designers from Ann Turk and Johanna Castillo with live DJ sets and all the fancy stuff you expect at the SLS. Oh, and there's an open bar from 9-10 p.m. RSVP to cpayne@furyadvertising.com.
  • Viernes Culturales: Little Havana's got culture too, bro.
